Who?

We enjoy regular monthly gatherings and visitors are very welcome to join us.

Our Saturday morning meetings are not tutor led but an informal ‘get together’, though help and support are available. It is an opportunity to make lace in company, with mutual help and support. Also, it is a chance to keep up to date with our Club’s activities and other interesting items! Plus, we often have our friendly harpist providing gentle background music.

We make many types of lace including Torchon, Bedfordshire (Beds), Honiton, Buckinghamshire (Bucks) and Continental. Our members also enjoy Knitted Lace, Needle Lace, Crochet and Tatting.

During the year, we hold courses with experienced tutors, as well as group projects, themed workshops and competitions. Each year, we have either a Lace Day or a Friendship Day, to which we welcome lacemakers from further afield, with craft suppliers, representation from The Lace Guild, plus refreshments and home baking.

We also sponsor an award at The Royal Highland Show, held annually in Ingliston (near Edinburgh Airport). It is called ‘The Edinburgh Lace Club Award for Best Exhibit of Lace, with Special Reference to Creativity’ and the winner receives a trophy and a cheque.
